  • EarthBound Promo Video

    Contrary to popular belief, this was not a TV commercial! It was played on special video kiosks that some stores had back in the day. They would play through videos in a set order, but you could press a button to see any video at any time. There were other game promos on these kiosks - and they were likely just as poor in quality.

  • EarthBound Video #1

    Rumor has it this video was played on cruise ships. Was it? Who knows. This does seem more like a promotional video than a review, so it could be true. But for now just consider it some weird video.

  • EarthBound Video #2

    ENDING SPOILERS!

    This is another cruise ship video. But this time, they tell you how to beat the final boss, and then they show the entire credits sequence for some reason. They also make fun of how bad the ending is. OK.
